Colorado Girl was the Catalyst for Mainstream CBD Awareness 

___________________________________________________________

Members of the cannabis community were shocked to learn last week of the death of Charlotte Figi, the young Colorado girl whose struggles with severe epilepsy made her the face of the medicinal CBD movement. Charlotte passed away on April 7 at the age of 13.

Paige and Steven Figi, Charlotte’s parents, confirmed her death, saying it was most likely the result of complications of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. Charlotte had been treated in a pediatric intensive care unit as a likely COVID-19 patient after she and several members of her family had been stricken with symptoms of the disease for weeks, according to a Facebook post from her mother that was written by a family friend. She was released from the hospital on April 5 after showing some improvement and the results of a test for the coronavirus taken two days earlier came back negative. After returning home, Charlotte had a seizure on the morning of April 7 that led to respiratory failure and cardiac arrest.

Charlotte began having seizures when she was only three months old. After she was diagnosed with Dravet syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy that usually appears in infancy, Paige and Steven began searching for a medication that would help their daughter. But by age 5, Charlotte was having up to 300 seizures a week and was confined to a wheelchair. She was unable to swallow and had to be nourished with a feeding tube. Eventually, after trying dozens of medications, it appeared that they were out of options.

“We were told by the doctor there was nothing left to try pharmaceutically,” Paige Figi said to The New York Times.

Determined not to give up, Paige continued her research and learned that cannabidiol had shown promise as a treatment for seizures. She then teamed up with the Stanley brothers, who owned a medical marijuana dispensary in Colorado Springs, to produce a medicine for Charlotte. The Stanley’s were able to breed a strain of cannabis that was high in CBD but low in THC. After making an extract from the harvest, the Figis gave it to Charlotte and hoped for the best.

“I didn’t think it was going to work,” Paige remembers.

The medicine did work, however. After starting treatment with the CBD extract, Charlotte went for seven days without a seizure. 

“She started talking, making eye contact, walking, and we removed her feeding tube,” Paige said.

A Movement Begins with One Little Girl

Charlotte continued to improve and soon came to national attention when she was featured on Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s CNN special “Weed” in 2013. After meeting Charlotte and Paige, Gupta changed his views on cannabis as a medicine and was soon advocating for CBD as a treatment for epilepsy. Before long, dozens of families with children who had seizure disorders, were moving to Colorado to gain access to Charlotte’s Web, the name given by the Stanley brothers to the strain of cannabis they had bred.

As news of the medicinal properties of CBD spread, a new industry was born. Soon, new strains of CBD-rich hemp, which could be grown nationwide under the 2014 Farm Bill, were available to growers across the country. One of those farmers is Franny Tacy, the owner of Franny’s Farmacy in North Carolina. She told HEMP in an email that she is thankful to Charlotte for igniting a movement that has changed how people around the world look at medical cannabis.

“An innocent, little girl with epilepsy has made a huge impact leading us out of prohibition, showing us the impact of hemp as beneficial plant medicine and lighting a path for the potential for cannabis to positively impact quality of life,” said Tacy. “Her life and sacrifice have inspired a movement and a nation forever.”

dea files lawsuit against hemp activists

DEA Files Lawsuit Against Hemp Activists

As we reported recently, hemp activists have questioned why the US Drug Enforcement Administration considers temporary hemp production byproduct to be a Schedule 1 substance.

The DEA has now responded to the challenge, saying it “is not required to explain how the (rule) applies to every hypothetical circumstance.” 

The DEA went further and criticized the activists’ attempts to seek a speedy resolution. “It is never appropriate for a private party … to hijack an agency’s policy making process to receive expedited consideration of their own concerns,” said the DEA. The DEA also suggested that the hemp case be moved from the district court to an appeals court.

The challenge in question was put forth by the Hemp Industries Association and South Carolina CBD maker RE Botanicals in reaction to a rule the DEA issued last summer. 

According to the DEA, it was updating its policies to comply with the 2018 Farm Bill, but hemp activists say the DEA is making an illegal power grab.

The Farm Bill removed low-THC cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act, effectively making CBD products legal. But the new policies from the DEA say that hemp extracts are still Schedule 1 controlled substances when they spike beyond allowable limits during a specific portion of the extraction process.

The Vitamin Shoppe® Releases Line of Full Spectrum & Broad Spectrum CBD Hemp Extract Products

This week, nutritional product retailer The Vitamin Shoppe® announced its first line of CBD hemp extract products.

The Vitamin Shoppe is releasing full spectrum CBD products under its Vthrive brand and while broad-spectrum CBD products are being released under the plnt® brand banner. The new tinctures and capsules will be available exclusively in The Vitamin Shoppe stores and online within the Shoppe’s CBD HQ.

“Bringing these new CBD products to market is a decisive milestone in the expansion of our private brands business and The Vitamin Shoppe’s commitment to industry-leading innovation,” said Sharon Leite, CEO of The Vitamin Shoppe. “The exceptional skill and knowledge of our product development and scientific and regulatory teams delivered a range of CBD formulas that are second to none in this dynamic product category.

Get BOGO deals from five CBD this holiday season











Loading…

Remember being a kid on Christmas, always racing to unwrap every little item stuffed into your stocking? There were always a variety of sweet treats, at least in my household, like the Lifesavers booklet (a staple) that came with eight or 10 different flavors, maybe a plastic tube shaped like a candy cane that was filled with M&Ms, or a highly coveted holiday-themed Toblerone. Back then candy haul felt more important than the other items like the socks and Mandarin oranges.

And while the days of tearing apart wrapping paper at lightning speed are long behind (most of) us, the want for confectionaries over the holidays is still very much real. 

Looking for adult alternatives to classic stocking stuffers? five CBD, a California-based maker of full-spectrum CBD products, is offering BOGO deals starting Green Wednesday and into the month of December. Use code LEAFLYBOGO to claim the deal (code is valid for one-time use).

From chocolates and gummies to sublingual tinctures and more, there’s a wide range of flavors and formats to discover. The common denominator? five CBD products are made using the highest-quality hemp extracts in their pure undiluted form, and they contain just the right blend of cannabinoids to make the holidays all the merrier. 

The company prides itself on producing CBD products that you can “really feel,” thanks to their 5:1 ratio of CBD to minor hemp compounds and terpenes which is inclusive of a legally-permitted amount of THC (<0.3%). 

With two-day shipping across the country and sweet BOGO deals rolling through the holiday season, the choice is yours; fill those stockings twice as fast, or buy one product to give away and keep the freebie for yourself.

Need some suggestions? From new products to all-time faves, here’s some festive products from five CBD to discover this holiday season.

Citrus Tincture

Add a little jingle to your bells with a burst of citrusy goodness courtesy of five CBD’s Citrus Tincture. The sublingual oil combines its hemp extract with organic MCT oil and uses only natural extracts to create its flavor. It’s best absorbed when taken with food, so have it with a serving of latkes or stuffing, depending on which holiday you subscribe to. Each 6,000mg CBD Tincture has approximately 115mg of THC in a 60ml bottle. 

Daily Buzz Gummies

Daily Buzz Gummies are a high dose, full-spectrum cannabis chewable with a 5:1 ratio of CBD to THC, CBN and CBC, and are ideal for anyone after a clean and consistent daily dose with an extra punch. Each gummy has 50mg of CBD, as well as 4.8mg of THC. Enjoy in the evening when not a creature is stirring, not even a mouse.

Original Gummies

If the Daily Buzz gummies are dosed higher than you like, the Original gummies should make your holidays more merry and bright. Each one has 25mg of CBD and 0.8mg of THC and is a discreet way to consume your cannabinoids, especially when around family or friends who might not “get” your use. 

Melatonin Gummies

If Santa can see you when you’re sleeping and knows when you’re awake, he’s probably aware that achieving the former can sometimes be a struggle. If you have trouble achieving those good REM cycles or are stuffing a stocking of an adult who does, five CBD’s Melatonin gummies will be a hit. Each one has 25mg of cannabis, like the Original option, but also has 3mg of melatonin. Take one hour before bed to encourage those zzzs.
